Ancient Drumming

It’s no wonder that all ancient cultures used drums when they needed to signify something important — drums were used in sacred rites and military actions, and also as a way to transmit information. War, public communications, weddings, funerals, religious rituals, and even dances — all take place to the beating of the drum. Even in ancient myths, a magical rhythm rules the world – it was rhythm that forged our world order from chaos, creating the familiar structure of reality.That is why in many ancient cultures, the rituals marking the new year are set to a drum rhythm that is often beat by the whole tribe, helping revitalize the world order and start anew.
